There is a soursop (Annona muricata) in your share that is almost ripe. They are ready to eat when they are completely soft and yield to gentle pressure. Try eating the soursop by scooping out the flesh out with a spoon (spit out the black seeds). It also makes a delicious juice, shake or ice-cream. Just remove the seeds from the pulp and blend until smooth. Add your favorite sweetner and milk.
Carambola, also called star fruit for its shape when sliced, is from the Averrhoa carambola tree. Native to Indonesia, the Phillipines, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India, starfruit is now grown in many tropical and subtropical countires throughout the world. Eat it like an apple, or try it juiced.
There's another coconut in your share this week. With all the rain we've been getting, it's not unusual to get 10 or 12 ounces of coconut water per fruit!
The mangoes this week are a mix of Julie, kidney, and Asian varieties
Enjoy the harvest,
Claudia & the crew at Ridge to Reef Farm
